Artists Rights Society is a unique and inclusive alliance of forward-thinking visual artists who seek to actively participate in the broader economic and cultural vitality of their time. Founded in 1987, we harness our 30+ years of experience with the power and prestige of our 122,000-strong global collective in order to create exciting new projects and collaborations. ARS plays a vital role in protecting the intellectual property of artists, at a time when the ability to control the rights of their work is often challenged.

In support of our mission, we guide artists through the often obscure realm of copyright and intellectual property matters through licensing expertise, legal support, advocacy, and educational outreach.
